Give it up for the Losers
Give it up for the Losers
The Phillies lost the World Series. The Union lost the MLS Cup. And Stretch Four talks about taking L's. Not every loss is created equal, some losers will be remembered more fondly than others, and sometimes wins don't matter as much as people want them to. We also talk about elections, voting, and some key races in the 2022 midterms.

We're in the corner, doing a podcast. This week, Keenan and Aaron talk about what kind of training, prep, and trickery it would take for each of them to score a single point in an NBA game. Then they get into a game of "what-if" they were able to focus from a young age on a skill that would lead them down the optimal life path. Then, they get into a debate about which rap verse is known by the most number of people all-time. Finally, they talk about great Philadelphia Phillies teams of the past and present.
